How to design Cosmetics Packaging Boxes ?
There are few industries out there with as much potential to develop loyal, die-hard customers as beauty and cosmetics.
Beauty products are a staple in bathroom cabinets around the world; whether a person is going for an “I woke up like this”
look or the avant garde “makeup is art you wear on your face” feel, just about every woman (not to mention tons of men!)
use beauty products on the daily.
This means if you own a beauty or cosmetics line, the potential for some serious business is there. But it also means if
you want to grab that business and take it for yourself, you’re going to need to find a way to break through the clutter, jump
off the shelf at Sephora, and tell your ideal customer “THIS is the lipstick for you!” And the best way to do that is your
Your packaging is the first thing the beauty die-hards you want to turn into customers are going to see. If your packaging
grabs their attention and speaks to what they’re looking for, they’re likely to take your product home and give it a try. If not?
It’s likely to gather dust on the shelf.
But how, exactly, do you design the kind of packaging that makes your ideal customer scream “I need that blush
yesterday?” Never fear, 99designs is here with all the information you need to design packaging that stands out on the shelf
and gets your product into your customer’s bag (and, eventually, on their face).
Measure the box’s length, width, and depth accurately such that it protects the item and has enough space for your design. Combine dimensions from the range available:
Length: 0.75” – 30”
Width: 0.75” – 20”
Height: 1.75” – 20”
Cardstock is recommended for cosmetic items sold on the shelf or delivered inside a shipping or mailer box. Select according to the durability and weight your item requires while on display:
14 pt. cardstock is the lightest option with a sturdy base for small quantity items like samples of makeup and beauty products.
18 pt. cardstock is twice as thick as the standard 14 pt. Recommended for medium-sized cosmetics like creams, sprays, and lipstick
24 pt. cardstock is the thickest and sturdiest among the three options. Perfect for heavier items like lotions, bottles, eyeshadow, and makeup sets.
All cardstock options come in protective coatings that elevate the appearance of the design:
Matte has an elegant, subdued appearance that works best on luxury brands. Perfect for items with printed step-by-step text instructions.
Gloss provides a mirror-like shine that brings out the bright colors on the cosmetic box.
The high gloss has a smooth and shiny surface with the highest reflectivity among the three. The coating also protects the design from fading and provides added thickness
Corrugated cardboard is composed of three layers that withstand the impact of deliveries in transit. Comes in standard white or premium corrugated cardboard for clean, minimalist designs. A glossy ink option is also available for added luxury.
There’s also a rustic Kraft (brown) option that suits organic or healthy nature-based products. Perfect for your organic skincare or makeup line.
Special custom printing options such as embossed text or images, spot UV areas, or foil finish colors can be included in your order. Contact our print experts to find out more.
